A Connecticut customer cashed in a CT Lottery ticket worth nearly a million dollars that was sold at an area liquor store.
On Monday, July 26, a Waterbury resident cashed in a "Millionaire" ticket worth $825,000 that was sold at International Wine & Liquor in Middlebury earlier this month.
CT Lottery did not disclose the winner's name.
According to CT Lottery, “when a winning scratch ticket is validated through a Lottery Retailer's terminal, the remaining number of unclaimed prizes for that prize level is automatically updated reflecting one less prize. Until the individual or group presents their winning ticket for claim at CT Lottery Headquarters, the identity of a winner is unknown.”
The Waterbury resident wasn't the only one feeling lucky; other recent winners of prizes topping $10,000, according to CT Lotto include:
